Warm autumn days, gentle breeze, sand between my toes, the sound of waves crashing against the shore—my heart is full of wonder and gratitude. It's days like this that it is especially difficult to keep my head behind the camera. I want to experience the world in first person, without the filter of the lens. Last night on a group photo walk, if only for a few minutes, I put down my camera, sat on a pier bench and took it all in.
Inhale. The beauty surrounds me. Exhale. I am grateful.
